What is accreditation?
Accreditation is a means of determining the technical competence of laboratories to perform specific types of testing. It provides formal recognition that laboratories are competent, impartial and independent, therefore providing a ready means for customers to identify and select reliable testing and measurement services that are able to meet their needs. To maintain this recognition, laboratories are re-assessed once every two years to ensure their continued conformance with requirements, and to check that their standard of operation is being maintained. The laboratory is also required to participate in relevant proficiency testing programs between reassessments, as a further demonstration of technical competence.
